Alba Palace


Italian Cities, Florence

  • Located 800 metres from the Duomo in the centre of Florence
  • Great value for money

Comprised of three historical buildings, the Alba Palace stands besides the cloisters of Santa Maria Novella, 800 metres from the Duomo in the historic centre of Florence and only 200 metres from the Santa Maria Novella station (Florence's main train station). The buildings surround the covered courtyard, now the hotel's breakfast room built in typical Florentine style. All the bedrooms are positioned around the central courtyard and are cosy and quiet.

The recent renovation of the building has combined the ancient origins of terracotta, stone and wrought iron originally used in these traditional buildings together with the modern comforts you will find in every room today. The Alba Palace is ideally located for exploring Florence and the lobby bar is a great place to unwind after a fun-filled day.

The hotel has 28 rooms (official rating 3 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years.

About the location
Holidays in Florence allow you to experience one of Europe’s most culturally and historically significant cities. Florence is a vibrant city nestled among the idyllic green hills of Tuscany. It retains a sense of intimacy and romance thanks to its relatively small size, while also offering a remarkable selection of museums, galleries, and restaurants, which continue to impress even the most regular visitor. Every stroll has the potential for something remarkable, whether it’s peering out of the Vasari Corridor or wandering across the Giardino di Boboli. Alternatively, for those looking to relax, there are beautiful vistas to be seen while enjoying a rooftop aperitivi in the evening.

Perhaps most known for its remarkable historical architecture, you will easily find renowned pieces of art by famous artists such as Filippo Brunelleschi, Leon Battista Alberti, and Michelangelo throughout the city. Florence continues to celebrate this tradition with impressive modern buildings, notably The New Florence Opera House, maintaining the city’s reputation as a marvel from every angle. Any visiting foodies will undoubtedly revel in Florence’s food culture, from its seven Michelin starred restaurants to the brilliant bustle of the Mercato Centrale. For peaceful and romantic retreats, there are numerous opportunities for short trips to the surrounding landscapes and towns, allowing for blissful escapes into Italy’s rural life.
